Freight conductor, Amos Fowler, and Brakeman, James Dailey, are laid up for repairs with badly injured fingers. It is the result of an accident which occurred at Columbia, Monday. They were loading a barrel of oil into a railroad car when the barrel slipped, catching both men's fingers under its ponderous weight. They came direct to Neillsville and the wounds were dressed by Dr. Conroy. Fortunately, no bones were broken in their fingers.
